Haricharan Pudipeddi | Hindustan Times: - | 4/10
Vijay shines in this mall invasion thriller that’s bogged down by flippant writing ... Full Review

M Suganth | Times of India: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Even Vijay can't rescue Beast from flippant writing. The director seems to have banked entirely on his star to carry the film, but with a script that hardly offers him anything to work with, even Vijay can only do so much with his star power ... Full Review

Ranjani Krishnakumar | Film Companion: - | 6/10
Nelson Loses And Vijay Gains In This Unremarkable Yet Absurdly Entertaining Action Film. AnbAriv’s action choreography, Manoj Paramahamsa’s cinematography, Anirudh’s background score and Jani’s dance choreography uphold a film that Nelson’s writing doesn’t ... Full Review

Vishal Menon | Film Companion: - | 6/10
Vijay Is Super-Chill In An Uncomplicated, Jolly Action Comedy Where The Stakes Don’t Matter At All. Beast is a film so devoted to the idea of being ‘jolly’ that it’s almost offensive to take it seriously ... Full Review

Manoj Kumar R | The Indian Express: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Nelson Dilipkumar could have used this plot set-up to turn in a nail-biting thriller. Instead, he gives us an unapologetic crowd-pleaser ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Vijay Fails To ‘Master’ This One, But It’s Still A Celebration For Thalapathy Fans! These roles have become a cake-walk for Vijay, and the problem is we've seen cake-walk too many times now ... Full Review

Ashameera Aiyappan | FirstPost: 3/5 | 6/10
In Beast, Vijay is surrounded by eccentric and flamboyantly funny characters, but as cliches pile up, the irreverent jokes aren’t enough to keep this beast alive ... Full Review

India Today: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Director Nelson Dilipkumar's Beast could have been an engaging action thriller had the screenplay been effective. Thalapathy Vijay tried so hard to save this clich├ęd thriller and he succeeded for the most part ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: - | 4/10
Vijay’s latest is a dull and tedious affair, this action drama required a lot more depth in its screenplay ... Full Review

Divya Nair | Rediff: 3/5 | 6/10
Beast is recommended if you enjoy dark comedy films like Doctor and don't like asking nach-nach (nagging) questions in the middle of a Thalapathy movie. Leave logic behind, sit back and watch Vijay do the impossible ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 2.5/5 | 5/10
The film’s major plot points are silly. Towards the end, the feeling of watching an outdated, one-man show film is inevitable ... Full Review

Gulte: 2.25/5 | 4.5/10
Beast is a routine story with farcical comedy that worked in most parts and some stylish action blocks that entertain fans ... Full Review

The Quint: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Beast is Entertaining, But Doesn't Exceed Expectations. The film aspires to be a commercial Indian version of the Hollywood invasion thrillers. It adds local humour, sprinkles sentiments and has a number of action sequences. And, we must say, it succeeds to an extent ... Full Review

Cine Chitchat: 2/5 | 4/10
Vijay is a large than life hero who can carry a movie solely on his shoulders. But even he needs support from script to do it convincingly and deliver a hit. Director Nelson should have known this basic fundamental. Without a proper script, even a star like Vijay can’t save this film ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan | Galatta: - | 3/10
Beast is proof that a really talented director needs a really good script to take on a really big star. I mean, one movie that does not work is not a major issue. It happens to all directors. But what's really frustrating is the apparent lack of effort ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 1/5 | 2/10
Nelson Dilipkumar falls prey to star-worshiping in the worst possible way with Beast, ironically diminishing the superstar aura of Thalapathy Vijay. Worse still, he reduces a delicate hostage scenario to a ludicrous joke and let's not even get into the blatant body-shaming and objectification ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2/5 | 4/10
This action-comedy plays out like a feckless quasi-superstar vehicle ... Full Review

Telugu360: 2/5 | 4/10
BEAST is a farcical and stupid film that occasionally plays to the peanut galleries. Fans of Vijay might find it passable, for others this hostage action-comedy film doesn’t make the cut. Best to avoid ... Full Review

Telugu Bulletin: 2.25/5 | 4.5/10
Beast is a sub-par action thriller. The mall hijack is not executed very well. Convenient narration takes away thrill element in action blocks. The comedy in the first half and Vijay’s impressive performance are the mainstays. But as a whole, the film is not the most engaging of watches. It might make for an okayish one-time watch strictly for Vijay’s fans ... Full Review

Mirchi9: 1.75/5 | 3.5/10
Beast has a passable first half where the comedy and action work in parts. However, it gets sillier, more over-the-top, and the narrative slides further down in the second hour ... Full Review

Cine Josh: 1.75/5 | 3.5/10
The film failed to connect chords with the movie lovers and with everything looking silly and overtop, Beast turned out to be a routine affair ... Full Review

Great Andhra: 2/5 | 4/10
Vijay rescues the hostages, but he fails to save the film as the writing and execution in the latter part of the movie are lame ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 2.25/5 | 4.5/10
Beast is a botched up action drama that goes wrong in several aspects barring a few laughs. Vijay is superb and tries hard to salvage the film but as the writing, execution and core emotions are so dull, even he cannot save the film which ends as a big disappointment and fails to live up to the hype ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 3/5 | 6/10
Vijay shoulders Beast, a stylishly shot action thriller which has equally engaging comedy moments ... Full Review

Newsbytes App: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Enjoyable if you keep reasoning locked inside cupboard. Film is a giant blackhole of illogical events ... Full Review

The News Minute: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Vijay is leaner, meaner, stronger. The film isn't. Nelson tries to be imaginative and break out of cliches but he keeps using the oldest tricks in the book whenever he runs out of ideas ... Full Review
